Hi there,
In April of 2009 I was diagnosed with high grade uterine leiymosarcoma. Anyone out there with a similar diagnosis?

    My maternal first cousin who lives in Germany has what you have. I have UPSC - papillary serous endometrial. I wonder if there is any genetic connection to these rare cancers. She was raised in Germany, me in the US. She has been battling this for a couple of years.

    I wish you well. Blessings, Mary Ann

    I have leiomyosarcoma too
    Hi wing,

    I was just diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma too. I think that there are others on the board, although the spelling is so hard that searches sometimes come up empty.

    I found references that other members with leiomyosarcoma are RuthRose,Gma,selena, Reneekarin1969, and more, although some are really old.

    I was just diagnosed
    I just found out three days ago that I have leiomyosarcoma in my uterus. I am still trying to deal with all of the unknowns. I have a 7yr old son and I have no idea what to tell him at this point since my OB isn't able to tell me anything about the cancer. I have two oncologists lined up, appts have been made, now I am just waiting for next week to get here so I can get more info.

    No disrespect to this board but you might find more immediate information on Hystersisters -

    http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/forumdisplay.php?f=6

    as this board is very difficult to navigate. Having said that, if you know what to look for, its an invaluable resource. There other links out there -

    http://www.mskcc.org/mskcc/html/13242.cfm which is the link to Sloan Kettering

    and http://www.leiomyosarcoma.info/steptwo.htm, this one deals in with all leimyosarcoma and has a page devoted to Uterine Leiomyosarcoma.

    Whatever you read, remember every case is unique and your doctors will be the best resource.
